    Default Paranoia over voice chat

    I suddenly got the idea to try to introduce Paranoia to my Skype-based DnD group, but since I've never GM ANYTHING before, I instantly went online looking for tips.

    I read a few threads on this forum about it, which were certainly helpful. I've only played Paranoia (Zap-style, which is what I want to play with my group now) via IRC chat, which worked pretty well I think. The tips I read online though often assumed the group was playing in real life.

    Are there any specific tips for running a game via voice chat? I know I could "pass notes" via individual PMs, but any other advice would be helpful. Thanks.

    Buy/download a voice synthesizer to speak through when acting in the role of Friend Computer.

The pancakes are also laced with blowfish poison so the party would have to get an antitoxin before they could eat the ones which weren't pulverized by shoes."

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Randomly cut out your Skype at appropriate times. Leave them scrambling in the dark for a little bit, whilst you make them incredibly paranoid. If your group is down for that.
